Lets be fair and praise what is really good on mpcx and live

I saw many complains from users which are think area bit unfair especially what is concerning the Ram available . It is true that it would be good to have a possibility to expand the ram availability . But if you use it connected to your computer then you do not have this problem anymore . It is true that the work flow could be improved as well as the effects section. Now lets look at what's is very good

Sound quality , construction quality

Ability to connect external eurorack gears via cv's

A lot of outputs plus inputs .

Metrone and advance display which is showing us where we are when recording beats is the best I saw

Can work as stand alone .

The quality of the pads , the touch screen

Now with 2.1 it is as well easily connected to a computer and work very well with
the computer , as well as a vst plug in in cubase controlled by the mpcx or live

Quality of encoders

It takes some time to learn it but it is with the effort , Tube Digga is a very good way to learn it , the manuals are quite good too .

Despite things which could be better the overall machines are great . I have Maschine too , but I prefer to create beats and sample in my MPC .

I hope Akai will work on resolving the issues and then they will be the best .

    I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying using the MPC! I'm excited to see what future updates will bring to the MPC hardware and software as well! :)

  • Hi. "Let's be fair" sounds a bit like some kind of justification for using the MPC, t.b.h.
    The recent Soft- and Hardware needs polishing to make the workflow for musicians and producers easier. So what is good on MPC X/Live? There's nothing else on the market workstation-vies, considering a MPC hardware and being part of the whole development which happens today seems a good thing to us. You're very much free
    to be part of a process. The Standalone concept is already the best in it's field, which
    is a very good base for further development. The software and hardware will receive
    updates, which add new options and system compatibility. We think it's really good to
    choose & use an electronic instrument for doing music to express yourself creatively.
